Switch is killing it.

Healthy numbers from PS4 as well. Xbox might make things more interesting next gen.

If they collaspe around 20-25M on next gen, this will be over for them and the hardware.

I don't think we can have 4 big competitors on the video game market.



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TGM3 MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Western record on TGM3 EASY : 1484
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Yeah, I think so too. But Xbox 360 managed to become popular even in Sonyland so they may have a shot.

Regardless of hardware sales, I think Xbox has potential as a service, especially if Game Pass becomes available on all consoles and mobile through xCloud.

Wait who's the 4th? Regardless, Microsoft is splitting between console and PC so it shouldn't be the end of the world if they don't push a lot of systems.

I think he counts Google Stadia as the 4th.



Switch more than double its nearest competitor, PS4, and the lifetime sales gap between Switch and Xbone is now less than 5 million.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Excellent hold for the Switch on the week after the Lite’s launch. Next week, I think it’ll be somewhere in the 250-300k range and that’s where it should stay (maybe Luigi’s Mansion 3 would give it enough of a boost to go back above 300k) until Sword/Shield comes out to put its holiday season in full swing.

And this complete the Q2 2019.

3,42M is the total here for Q2 estimated by VGC.

If we ignore the future adjustments, this looks like an easy 4M+ for shipment. Here is the current state of the transit, I had adjusted all my values I believe.

How do you read this ?

I believe that's shipped vs sold (VGC figures). But if you have to sit here and try to figure out what do you even looking at, you know it's a poor design. Table without title and/or explanation, no UoMs, chart without title and axis titles, mismatched units on x axis etc. If I sent anything like that to my boss, he'd most likely say to send him one where he doesn't have to arrange 1-to-1 meetings to read it.

I answered to him already. Compared to what I can see here sometimes, mine doesn't have to feel so ashamed. I will arrange it next time if I have to post it again.

Guessing this is the aftershock from Switch Lites launch, my mate got one on day one and just seeing how compact and light it is makes me consider getting it, even though I already have a Switch OG and a Switch 1.1 with the updated battery life.
